Ross 'Teddy' Craig: The traditional view of Scottish football ... it's not what you think

10 Apr 2015 08:30

I WROTE last week about Ricky Sbragia’s decision to overlook Real Madrid’s Jack Harper for the Scotland under-19s squad because he’d decided instead to go with “height and runners”. It’s easy to take a swipe at that kind of thinking and look like you’ve only arrived to the beautiful game in the last 10 years and are basing everything on Barcelona.

Ross 'Teddy' Craig: Why Ricky Sbragia's wrong - Jack Harper isn't a luxury for Scotland, he's a necessity

3 Apr 2015 08:30

I REMEMBER Ricky Sbragia towards the end of his brief spell in charge of Sunderland. Thinking back on it, the haunted eyes evoked the same kind of sadness and perhaps even fear that could be seen in the post-match interviews of Kenny McDowall at Rangers or Terry Connor at Wolves. A sense of a man having a position foisted upon him that he didn’t actually want. He was clearly rated at Sunderland though, the club also allowed him to return to work with the youth teams.
